The Omni Group on Friday released a public Beta of
OmniOutliner 3.0, with a Beta of OmniOutliner 3.0 Professional due “in the next few weeks” — the developer expects to ship the final versions of both in early 2005. New features added to the outlining tool include support for attachments, a batch find operation, new export options and more, including such performance improvements as better AppleScript support. OmniOutliner Professional will offer such additional features as folded editing, named styles, support for audio recordings and more.
Omni Outliner 3.0 will sell for US$39.95 when it ships, while OmniOutliner 3.0 Professional will be $69.95. Anyone purchasing version 2.0 between Nov. 3 and the release date of the version 3.0 will be able to upgrade for free — upgrades from version 2.0 to version 3.0 will cost $19.95, while upgrades to the new Professional edition will be $49.95. Educational discounts are available. The Beta will expire on Jan. 20, 2005. No system requirements were given.
